Countdown to Christmas

True to form, December has been a very busy month!

Still found time to put the Christmas tree up though!

It was strange coming back to Burlesque after such a long time away - I wasn't even sure I'd remember how to do it! I mean, sure, I know how to take my bra off, I still do it most days; but in time to music, one handed, holding a pair of feather fans, while people watch... hmmm...

But, while much has changed (and maybe that's a subject for another blog?), some things haven't changed, and one of those things is how welcoming the cabaret world is. I've had Facebook messages from people welcoming me back, and glitter-covered hugs at backstage reunions; I've reconnected with some of the best people on the planet, and met new (to me) performers who are simply wonderful.

I have to admit I was a bit scared to come back; would anyone remember me? Would I get booked? Will audiences tastes have changed and no one would like me? But I needn't have worried, and now I wonder why I left it so long! I had my reasons for stepping away, and I have my reasons for coming back. But I also had reasons why I dithered for a time while I considered it, and I'm so glad I made the decision.

So, here's to a fabulous Christmas, a wonderful New Year, and a packed 2018.

Bring on the bubbly wine!

This weekend has been another lovely one - back at my old playground Proud City.

Thursday Night Proud Cabaret

The audience on Thursday were small but perfectly formed, and on Saturday the entire venue was full to the brim of folk having a wonderful time - as did I!

It's so nice to see familiar faces, and meet new (to me) performers, and I loved Deux Ailes act on Saturday night!

It's like I've never been away!

She's Back...

I'm back, beauties!

It's been two and a half years since I hung up my tassels - though it's been a lot longer than that since I last posted a blog here.

But, I started to miss performing, so I decided that it was time for me to pop on my heels and make my way back to the stage; and what lovelier place to come back to than Proud Cabaret in Brighton.

I have to say I was actually terrified (though it was Halloween so rather apt!) I wasn't sure whether I'd be able to perform any more!

But, it went well, I think... At least I didn't fall over, and everything came off when it was supposed (and stayed on where it was supposed to!) so that's a win in my book.

Nervous! Waiting to go on stage...

Backstage I had the gorgeous ladies Cherry DeVille and Violet Blaze to look after me, and the beautiful GM Carmen was on hand to ply me with gin and give me hugs!


So, I have a few more shows before the end of the year, which is exciting, and I'm taking bookings for the rest of 2017 and beyond... mostly I'm so looking forward to glitter-covered reunions with some of the best people!
